Sorry, but I don't think blindsiding someone is "Great Stuff". True, the heckler should have been ejected, forceably if necessary, but not by Al Franken. That would be a job, one would think, for someone with the training and experience in such a task. Say, a policeman, for example.

And what does this say about Al Frankin? Obviously he had no consideration on the potential damage he might have done to the heckler. You may or may not know this, but blindside tackling someone, which by definition means the vitim is unprepared for the blow, is a pretty good way to seriously injure someone. For example, how many concussions did Troy Aikenman have with the Cowboys from similar tackles - and that was someone who was wearing a padded helmet.

There is also consideration that the polical discourse in this nation should not be reduced to physical violence. If I don't like something you write on your web site, should I go after you with a baseball bat? I don't think so.

This is proof that franken is too unstable to run a successful radio show.

Why it is that when a party gathering degenerates into chaos, it is always the Democrats?

It is the party of young, emotional, idealistic college age people.

All of those young, emotional, idealistic college age people will be running the country some day. Guess I am glad that high school dropouts like myself are the ones that are really in tune with the country and the problems that we face. Thanks for the compliment!

Good for Franken, and I hope there is more to come. The right wing has plans to disrupt Demo rallies, and I think the sooner those of us who are physically able to tend to the GOP goons get organized, the better.

Personally, I'm ready now. And it isn't going to be a tackle. And if you don't like it, well, I hope it's you. I'll be in the crowd, looking for you. Are you ready to lay your body down? I can't wait. Just to see the stupid look on your face when it happens. You have no idea.
